Diabetes Treatment and Prevention in Kenya

Diabetes treatment involves lowering the patient’s blood sugar level by adopting a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and medication when required. Recent studies and surveys have revealed that type 2 diabetes can be prevented and reversed by adopting a low carbohydrate diet. In the UK, practice-based studies show that the introduction of a low carb diet leads to significant improvements in HbA1c, body weight and lipid profile that lead to the withdrawal of medication in many cases.

Despite evidence that diabetes can be prevented and reversed through lifestyle and dietary modification, the primary focus of treatment and management of type 2 diabetes in Kenya is on medication, which is overbearingly expensive at an individual level. Furthermore, while these drugs help improve your blood glucose level, it’s not always sustained, and further medication is often required.

It is due to these reasons that a sustainable diabetes treatment program (Diabetes Reversal Program) needs to be adopted to help promote both the lifestyles of those with type 2 diabetes and those at the risk of getting it. Adopting such a plan will prevent diabetes complications, easing the current strain it has on Kenya’s health system.
